This beautiful old cathedral is definitely worth stopping into when you're in Lund. Centrally situated, it's hard to miss its two tall towers. Entry is free and you can wander around the main hall as well as the crypt. There are also regular guided tours in Swedish and English which let you take in a lot more of the history... More

I went here in October, which is starting of Winter in Sweden, so there were less tourists. This Cathedral is in the center of the city, next to the Train Station. It is made beautifully. There was a Mass practice going on, which made the experience worth remembering.

Lund's cathedral is located right at the center of Lund, which makes a lot of sense when you learn that the city grew up around the church which was completed around year 1060. Lund was part of Denmark at the time, and the Danish king had converted to Christianity. Uppåkra was the main village in the region at this time... More

Considering the image of the vikings I was surprised to find such an interesting and fine church from a few decades later.

We took a special trip to Lund because my boyfriend mother was born there. What made it so special was looking at the church from her eyes. She took us through every corner of the church telling us stories from her childhood and recalling the details of the church dating back 10th century! What made it more specular was she... More

Well worth 15 minutes. Hell, it's in the center of town anyway. Definitely go down to the basement crypt. If nearby at 12:00 or 15:00, the astrological clock will play a tune

Outlook of church says how old it is. Inside of the cathedral you can see interesting very old things. To me, astronomical clock show (at 15?) wasn't very appealing. Tourist friendly Cathedral I would say.
